Man Caught Drunk Gassing in Bayside
Milwaukee man charged with his third OWI after police find him filling up at Open Pantry smelling more like alcohol than gasoline.
A 41-year-old Milwaukee man is facing drunk driving charges after he was caught filling up his gas tank in Bayside while drunk.
Eduard Feldman was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Monday with one count of third offense operating while intoxicated and one count of operating a motor vehicle with a prohibited alcohol concentration. If convicted, he faces up to one year in county jail and $2,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
Bayside police were called to Open Pantry Monday on report of a reckless driver, where they found Feldman filling up his gas tank. Feldman smelled of alcohol and slurred his speech while talking with officers, so he was asked to perform field sobriety tests to see if it was OK to let him drive.
Feldman failed the tests and has a blood alcohol level of 0.14.
He was previously convicted of OWI in 1997 and 2008. He’s currently being held in Milwaukee County Jail.
